THE NEW TRAINING SCHOOL
During the winter of 1925 the Genei'al Assembly of Ohio appropriated Three
Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars for a teacher-training building for Kent State Normal
College. By resolution of the Board of Trustees of the College, the building' was
named "The William A. Cluff Teacher-Training Building." This action was taken
partly in consequence of Mr. Cluff's help in presenting to the Legislature the needs
of the College and partly because of his genuine friendliness for the Training
The new building will probably be finished some time during the month of May
and will be ready for occupancy in time for the summer quarter which opens June
20, 1927. It will house all of the departments of the training school, viz. the kinder-
garten, the elementary school, the junior high school, and the senior high school.
The building is 275 feet long and 65 feet wide except in the central section which is
wider. In addition to the basement or ground floor, there are two other complete
floors and a third one over the central part of the building. Most of the ground
floor is higher than the grade line next to the building.
On the ground floor will be found the kindergarten rooms, the home economics
department, the manual arts, locker rooms, showers and store rooms. The floor of the
small gymnasium extends several feet below the ground floor level and thus aff'ords
sufficient height for basket-ball.
The first floor proper has the assembly room, one college recitation room, the
offices, and class rooms to accommodate the entire elementary school. The next
floor will be given over to the junior and senior high schools with the junior high
school on the south end and the senior high school on the north. The senior high
school study room is in the central part of the building. Special music and art
rooms are on this floor in the extreme north end. The top floor over the central
part of the building has rooms for physics, chemistry, and biology.
In the elementary and junior high school department each critic teacher is to
have two rooms so that if necessary she may divide her grade and supervise the
work of two student-teachers at the same time.

OUR GRADUATES AS TEACHERS
We Americans believe in education. Our faith in it is unquestioning. We be-
lieve in schools. We believe in schools because we regard them as the strongest safe-
guard of society, as the best means of developing individual personality, as the surest
way of enlightening the entire human race; and we are certain that in them are
laid the soundest foundations for national stability.
The prime factor contributing to the effectiveness of these schools is the teacher.
It is generally agreed that the teacher constitutes the heart and soul of the school.
To supply schools with adequately trained teachers is looked upon by many as the
largest field of professional service in America.
Teachers colleges have been developed as specialized institutions for the express
purpose of training teachers. Kent State College is classed among the worthy mem-
bers of this group of professional schools. It has been and it continues to be the aim
at Kent to maintain a faculty which shall be the life giver — the soul of the institution.
This group of teachers must transmit to the teachers-to-be the ideals, knowledge and
skills which they in turn will use in directing the children and adolescents to a realiza-
tion of their greatest possibilities.
Kent State recognizes in the candidates for graduation in the classes of 1927
many of the native and acquired qualities that make for success. Among these
qualities your Alma Mater prizes especially worthy character which gives security
in every walk of life; scholarship or wealth of knowledge which is the first essential
in teaching; faith in education, in young life, in humanity, and in the teaching pro-
fession; vision that looks beyond the day's routine into the inclusive life of society;
fine idealism; and self-control.
These are the qualities that have enabled Kent's alumni to achieve success and to
gain recognition among the leaders in their chosen field. These same qualities will
enable the graduates of succeeding years to become noble men and women — teachers
capable of transforming American youth into a better citizenship.

ADVISOR TO MEN
Being creatures of habit we are always the
victims of customary procedure. Because the
early schools were so organized that military
discipline was necessary to guarantee existence,
we find ourselves still thinking of administratioii
in terms of reward and punishment. So it is that
too often the student thinks of the advisor as
one especially designated to do the scolding and
At Kent State we are organized with the
thought of making the Advisor to Men as help-
ing friend. We believe that successful admin-
istration must be based upon a desire to give
guidance and suggestion and carried out through
democratic cooperation between faculty and
The oflice of Advisor to Men gives a varied
service including —
1. An attempt to provide better rooms and
better rooming conditions.
2. An effort to arrange part time employment.
Advice to students concerning programs.
The giving of encouragement and inspiration to those students who have not
adapted themselves to new conditions.
Supervison of the social life of men students.
The giving of aid to fraternal and other student organizations in the conduct of
It is the hope of those directing the affairs of the college that the growth in
service rendered may keep pace with the growth of the institution and that the
idealism of the typical Kent man may be such as to set him apart as a leader in any

DEAN OF WOMEN
OUR COLLEGE DAYS
John Ruskin once said: "There are few
things more wonderful to me, than that old
people never tell young ones how precious their
youth is. They — scarcely ever warn or watch
them. Remember, then, that I at least have
warned you (young men and young women)
that the happiness of life, and its power — de-
pend on the way you pass your days now.
They are not to be sad days, far from that, for
the first duty of young people is to be delighted
and delightful; but they are to be in the deepest
sense solemn days."
During no four years of your life can Ruskin's
words be more applicable than during your
college years. They are not to be sad years,
but years full of joy — because they should be
full of all good things.
First, you should be enjoying robust health.
We watch and warn, for >\'e do not want you to
learn to prize your health through the sad experience of losing it. Youth and health
Secondly, you should rejoice in mental growth. There should be joy and zest in
intellectual attainment. You should know the thrill that comes from performing
perfectly the mental tasks set for you in college. Particularly should you rejoice in
the hard thinking out of a problem to its logical conclusion.
Thirdly, you should rejoice because these college years are afforded you for
spiritual growth. This does not mean that college will prove to be a storehouse of
spiritual manna, though it should be that far more than it is. But for the normally
developing soul, college years should be a period when spiritual problems are squarely
met, and when insight and faith are developed. We warn, and watch, and hope.
Have you ever heard a better answer to the question, "Why go to college than
this, — "We go to college to learn how to live with others." College years, therefore,
should be full of the joy of social contacts. Perhaps of all the subjects offered in any
college, the one not listed in any curriculum is most fruitful in our lives — the study
of human nature. Alumni generally seem to prize most highly, and to find most en-
during, the blessings offered during undergraduate days of acquaintanceship and
friendship. If there is any other more valued asset taken out of college halls, it is
the ability to know how to attack a problem. And here again, we of the faculty
stand by, and with Ruskin, "watch and warn."
Happy are they who arrive at the end of their college course with no regrets,
and who leave college better than they entered it. And happy is their Alma Mater,
for she gives them her blessing with a sense of confidence in their ability and in
their spirit to solve even greater problems beyond her fair campus.

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE
L. S. IviNS, Ph. B., M.S., M. A.
The school laws of Ohio require that agriculture
be taught in high schools and elementary schools;
that elementary teachers who are examined by
county superintendents, must take the examination
in agriculture in order to teach; and that Kent Col-
lege must maintain an adequate department for the
training of teachers of Agriculture for the schools
of the state. Because of these laws Kent State since
it first opened its doors has maintained a Depart-
ment of Agriculture for the complete and proper
instruction of prospective teachers and other stu-
dents who desire a broad and cultural education.
DEPARTMENT OF ART
Nina S. Humphrey
"The term 'drawing' applies to only a small part
of the instruction and education in the realm of
art that is designed to teach children to appreciate
the beauty of truth; to catch the message from
nature and from human life; to rightly interpret
it and to express it in such a way as to give the
message and the joy which accompany it to others.
This is the mission of art."
DEPARTMENT OF BIOLOGY
Ethel Gowans, B. S., A. M.
The scope of biology is unmeasurable and its prob-
lem endless, but it aims to teach its laws in such a
way that one may understand the meaning of what
has gone before; that he may live a longer, fuller
and more purposeful life; that he may vision a
brighter and better future because the history of
the past has shown that change is slowly but pro-
gressively towards greater perfection and beauty;
and that man is not the reason for the existence of
all earthly things, but that he is greatly honored
by being one with all about him.
(Prepared by Eva N. Spencer, student of the
THE DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE
Louis A. Bu Damn, M.A.
This is the newest departmental addition to the
college. It was opened in January, 1925 with two
instructors and an approximate enrollment of 60
students. It now has three instructors in whose
classes there are enrolled a total of one hundred
and sixty students. Its primary aim is to prepare
teachers of commercial subjects in high school but
it also offers excellent opportunity to those students
who wish training for commercial or secretarial
positions, or to those who may desire a wider range
of electives in their college work. If given the
proper amount of publicity and provided with
additional equipment it liids fair to become one of
the major departments of the college.
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
Daniel W. Pearce, B. S., A. B., A. M., Acting
Head of Department
A department of Education in a Teachers' Col-
lege should be the center about which all the
facilities of the academic departments and The
School of Directed Observation and Teaching are
organized. That is to say the Department of Educa-
tion should function as a co-ordinator and as an ever
willing helper in all efforts directed towards realiz-
ing as fully as may be the objective of such an in-
stitution, namely artistic teachers.
DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH
Edgar Packard, A. B.
Study English. It is the world's foremost lan-
guage. It is the material by which vague subcon-
sciousness takes on form in the most practical, the
most philanthropic, and the most inspiring thoughts
now being produced. It is the means of self-ex-
pression by which the one-fifth of the race now-
using it is enabled to publish four-fifths of all books
and periodicals. And it is the medium of communi-
cation which all the signaling at sea and nine-
tenths of all the cablegrams and telegrams employ.
DEPARTMENT OF FRENCH
Miss Rowlan, A. M.
The aim of this department is to oflfer an oppor-
tunity of mastering French for its own sake. Here
is a chance to lengthen your vision, to open the doors
of the unknown. By much reading from many
authors you will be able to follow the thoughts of
the masterminds of another great civilization. So
you may form contacts with source material, and
advance to research work in history, literature, and
science as well as add to the pleasure found in
music, art and travel.
A key to a fuller life.
DEPARTMENT OF GEOGRAPHY
David Olson, M. Sc, A. B.
In earlier times a man's area of relationships
extended but little beyond his visual horizon. To-
day it is Earth encompassing. We depend on and
contribute to all parts. In this enterprise we have
girdled the earth with rails and wires. We have
taken to waters and the air and indeed to the uni-
versal ether. We are straightening rivers, levelling
mountains, extending shorelines, deepening bays
and exploring the air. We fly over the plains and
waters and have gone far in conquering physical
force. Peace and good will depend on our under-
standing this new and wider sphere of interrela-
tions. Here lies the field of geography.
DEPARTMENT OF HISTORY AND SOCIAL
H. D. Byrne, M. A., A.B.
Every intelligent individual desires to know in
somewhat of detail the story of the long journey
of mankind down through the millenniums of time.
The History Department offers four years of stand-
ard college history, in addition to certain methods
and special courses. This Department is also devel-
oping the Social Science studies in the field of
Economics, Sociology and Government. New courses
have been developed constantly to take care of the
increased demand until it is now possible for the
student to secure four years of work in these com-
bined fields. Further additions are planned in these
subjects for the ensuing year.
DEPARTMENT OF HOME ECONOMICS
Bertha Louise Nixson, B. S.
"No Nation is any better than its homes."
When we consider that the fifty per cent of
children who never enter high school do establish
homes and found families that must be maintained
on the low wage scale, we realize the need of
stressing home-making in the elementary and sec-
ondary schools of our land. The importance of
applying the principles of home economics in the
lives of individuals necessitates its being taught in
correlation with all other subjects. The home i.s
the nuclevis from which springs the physical, mental,
social, and spiritual life.
DEPARTMENT OF KINDERGARTEN-PRIMARY
Hazel Swan, B. S.
The Kindergarten-Primary Department was or-
ganized in September with Miss Herman in charge
of the work with the kindergarten children, and
with Miss Swan in charge of Teacher-training.
The children attend in two sections, a morning
and an afternoon session. Seventy have been reg-
The department is otfering five courses in Teacher-
training at present. Recommendations have re-
cently been made for a four year curriculum grant-
ing Bachelor of Science Degree and Certificate for
teaching in Kindergarten and grades one, two and
Margaret Dunbar, B. L., B. L. S.
A library is the scholar's workshop; it is the
teacher's assistant; it is the professional man's
outfit. To the true book lover it is much more:
it is a paradise of delights wherein are contained
those things that inform the mind, stimulate the
understanding, cultivate the heart, and uplift the
DEPARTMENT OP MATHEMATICS
Raymond Manchester, A. M., A. B.
An ancient philosopher, when asked what studies
a youth should pursue, replied : "Mathematics and
music — the one that he may know God, the other
that he may enjoy man." Centuries have turned
around the clock of time but we still study mathe-
matics to discover truth and music to provide en-
tertainment and inspiration. So, when you are
weary of studying opinion and surmise, come to
room 315 for a study of the true laws governing
man and his universe.
DEPARTMENT OF MANUAL TRAINING
Clinton Van Deusen, M. E.
Thorndike names three forms of intelligence :
general, social, and mechanical. The aim of this
department is to develop the last of these three and
to develop elements of skill that may be of service
later in the learning process or as a foundation for
later vocational work.
This form of intelligence and skills can best be
developed thru actual experience in handwork.
Manual training is handwork given in schools for
Much of this work may well be given in the ele-
mentary school by the regular grade room teacher.
It is for this reason that those preparing to be
grade room teachers should take manual training.
DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC
Grace King, A. M.
The aim of music is to provide us with a wise
use of our leisure hours, resulting in the love and
desire for good music.
Shakespeare has said : "The man that hath no
music in himself and is not moved by sweet sounds,
is fit for treasons, stratagem and spoils. Let no
such man be trusted."

DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICAL SCIENCES
C. F. RuMOLD, A. B., LL. B.
The Department of Physical Sciences offers
courses in Chemistry and Physics which are the
equivalent of similar courses in Colleges and Uni-
versities. Full credit has always been given every-
where and for every purpose for the work done at
Kent State in these courses.
Ninety-six term hours of Chemistry and twenty-
four term hours of Physics are available. General
Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry,
Qualitative Analysis and Food and Nutrition Chem-
istry are offered in consecutive courses. Freshman
College Physics, Radio and Methods of teaching
Science ai-e offered in the Physics courses.
DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION
A. O. De Weese, B. S., M. D.
The purpose of the Physical Education course is
to prepare men and women to discharge the duties
of a director of a School of Health as follows:
1. To give pupils their physical examinations.
2. To have charge of the health education of
3. To advise concerning the heating, lighting,
and the ventilation and sanitation of the school
4. To direct playground activities.
5. To have charge of such special classes as
open air classes.
supervise athletics and games.
Lawrence Miller, A. M., B. S.
The Registrar's office is no longer considered
merely as a place where records are kept. Rather
it is now thought of as the place where the officers
and faculty of the college can go for information
in regard to many problems. It is rapidly becom-
ing a research office investigating problems of
KP]NT STATE TRAINING SCHOOL
Emmet Stophek, A. B.
Kent State Training School with its 450 pupils
is extensively used for observation and research
purposes by the Department of Education and by
the various special methods classes of the college.
It furnishes opportunities for student teaching in
the kindergarten, the elementary school, and in the
junior and senior high schools. Faculties for prac-
tice teaching include not only the usual academic
subjects, but also music, art, home economics, man-
ual training, commercial subjects, and physical

KEN ^ STATE
Kent State College is set on a hill, —
To win to her door you must climb with a will,
And Kent State Hill is weariful long, —
Hut we trudge on together, a glad-hearted throng
Climbing the hill at Kent.
Kent State portal is open wide;
You've made the grade and you're safe inside;-
There's a clarion call to maiden and youth,
For now is the time you begin, in truth.
Climbing the hill at Kent.
For, hills of the earth or hills of the soul.
It is all the same, for they take their toll,
One of the body and one of the mind,
And the summit is hard to gain, we find.
Climbing the hill at Kent.
But keep a-stepping, and first you know.
You are up on top where the cool winds blow,
Below, farstretched, lies a wonderful view
And glad are the eyes and the heart of you
That vou climbed the hill at Kent.

CHI PI HONORARY JOURNALISTIC FRATERNITY
A long felt need at Kent State College was met, when Chi Pi Honorary Journalistic
Fraternity was organized, February 1, 1927. The purpose of the organization is to
bring editors of the various publications in closer touch with each other, and to
further the journalistic work of the college.
Dr. David Allen Anderson and Professor Edgar Packard consented to act as
advisors and have done much to assist in establishing the fraternity.
Charter members are: Robert Fosnight, Editor-in-chief, and Helen Blake, Assis-
tant Editor, The Chestnut Burr, '27; Virginia Webber, Editor, The Kentonian, '27;
Alice Muriel Young, Editor, The Kentonian, '26; Robert Hall, Department Editor,
The Kentonian, '26-'27; Margaret Hayes, Editor, The Kent Stater, '26.
The Chi Pi pin consists of a key designed by Robert Hall.
Until such time as a Department of Journalism can be established at Kent State,
it is felt that this fraternity can play an active part in shouldering the responsibilities
of the various publications.

The Kindergarten in the Kent State Training School is the only kindergarten
in the community. This year the enrollment totaled sixty-eight children, the largest
number the school has ever had. Subsequently it became necessary to have both a
morning and an afternoon kindergarten session in order to accommodate all the
children. Bus transportaion is provided for all who desire it at the nominal fee of
cen cents per day.
The kindergarten room is a large, light, well ventilated room on the ground
floor. It is fully equipped with the many and varied materials of the kindergarten.
In addition it now possesses a play screen and furniture. This splendid addition was
the work of the Kindergarten-Primary Department in the College and came as a gift
The activities in the kindergarten include almost every phase of subject mat-
ter in the elementary curriculum. However, the method used is one of correlation
of subject matter. This is accomplished through individual and group projects, birth-
day celebrations and excursions. Most of the projects centered about Hallowe'en,
Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentines Day, Washington's Birthday, Easter, and the
May Day Party. Three larger and more extensive projects were those based upon
the home, the community, and the farm. Excursions through the community, to the
post-office and to the farm accompanied the project work and were thoroughly enjoyed
by the children. Birthdays and holidays, too, are celebrated appropriately.
The Mothers' Club is an active and vitally interested organization associated wth
and affiliated with the kindergai'ten. The Mothers gather bi-monthly for discussion
of child problems and for a social hour.

The Special Music Department is increasing in quality and quantity each year.
It is composed of about forty girls.
Class work consists of methods, piano, voice, harmony, and conducting lessons.
The department furnishes musical programs for chapel exercises during the year,
and gave an Operetta, "Miss Cherry Blossom," which was well attended.

The Orchestra of Kent State College is an active organization that features in
many of the college assemblies. It does some very interesting pieces and expects to
do several very lovely compositions for graduation.
Miss Grace King, the director, believes in giving the orchestra a chance to play
many different types of music, even giving it an opportunity to play modern and
The orchestra meets twice a week in Miss King's room at seven o'clock on Tuesday
evening and ten o'clock on Thursday morning.
Miss King spends a great deal of time and thought in endeavoring to make the
orchestra a vital force on the college campus.

Among the outstanding and flourishing organizations at Kent State is the Velvet
Curtain Players. This club, composed of thirty members chosen from the school,
has been a live, active, vi'orking body throughout the year.
With Miss Nellie Herman as supervisor and faculty adviser, the club has been
able to reflect a type of vi^ork that is not only creditable to itself, but to the college.
Perhaps its greatest achievement was the production of Booth Tarkington's
"Ghost Story," which was given at the "Pop" Concert. The play not only created great
interest but revealed the dramatic ability of the club. It typified that spirit of co-
operation which is necessary for the production of every play.
Plans are being made for the Homecoming play, and at that time the Velvet Cur-
tain Players will again appear and demonstrate to the college its ability in fostering
and developing dramatics.

THE CHESTNUT BURR
In me you find the record of a year
Which Time has taken to an Unknown land.
I keep in rock the words you write on sand
And writing pass; I am the smile — the tear —
The song you sang one morning when the spring
Was fair among the roses; — I am truth.
My two-edged sword will clip the silveiy wing
Of age — I am the keeper of your Youth.
The memories which cluster round the hill.
The Dorm and walks I will keep clean and true.
My flowers fade not — my sky is always blue.
In me is beauty Time can never kill.
My voice will bid life's waning sun stand still
While those I cherish dream old dreams anew.

MOST P O P IT L A R STUDENTS
Faces wreathed in smiles would win first prizes in most anything, thought college
students in selecting Robert Hall, Ravenna, and Miss Agnes Quinlan, Coshocton, as
the most popular man and most popular woman student on the campus.
The contest was conducted in connection with the sale of The Chestnut Burr.
All students ordering annuals were given an opportunity to vote for a most popular
man and woman.
Mr. Hall is a member of Delta Phi Sigma fraternity and is a sophomore. He
is a member of the editorial staff of tlie Kent Stater and The Chestnut Burr.
Miss Quinlan, besides being the most popular girl, is a senior in the '27 diploma
class, is a college cheerleader, captain of a girls' athletic team, and goes in for other
activities. She is not a member of any sorority. She took first place in the contest
in a field of "seven opponents who had sorority affiliations.
"Quinnie," is the most popular co-ed's nickname. Hall goes by the name of "Bob."
The two most popular were congratulated by hosts of admiring friends after first
announcement of the contest had been made by Robert Fosnight, editor of The Chest-
It is planned to conduct a similar contest next year.

With the organization of new fraternities, there has developed a need for definite
understandings between them. To take care of these needs, the Intra-Fraternity
Council was formed. This, being its initial year, it may seem that not much was
accomplished but to those who composed it, a nucleus of an organization which will
build for unison and solidarity among the fraternities, is very apparent.
To produce cooperation instead of intrigue and antagonism and to unite the
fraternal organizations into a happy and harmonious family are the chief aims of
the Council. It is planned by another year to establish a definite system of pledging;
to encourage "open-house" meetings and to hold All-Fraternity social functions.
Also plans to promote, through competitive contests, spirit in scholarship and
athletics are being formed. Each fraternity has manifested a fine spirit of cooperation
in every way, and by another year the Intra-Fraternity Council will take its place
among the most valuable organizations of the college.
There are at present three fraternities in the Council. These, with their
presidents, are :

\\- O :\I E X ' S LEAGUE
What is the Women's League? It is the one society in which evei-y woman
student at Kent State College enjoys membership. It has but one aim! That is to
render the greatest service possible to all college women and to promote greater
The League holds a most prominent place among the college organizations. It
is active along both social and educational lines. One all-college dance is given every
term by the League, and a tea dance is held, after each registration, in honor of the
new students. A reception and dance in honor of our Alumni is given at "Home
Coming" each year.
This year the League is sponsoring a Mothers' and Fathers' Day Celebration
which is to be some time in May. It is hoped that this will become an annual custom.
In the way of educational activity the League is responsible for two or more
Assembly programs each term, including the Arbor Day Program in the Spring.
These programs are always of the most entertaining and profitable type.

The Men's Union exists for the purpose of promoting a closer feeling of fellow-
ship and equality among the college men. While smaller groups are quite select, the
Union includes every man, who by virtue of his registration, shall be considered a
During the past year, the Union had been very active. In the fall term, two gym
parties were held, in which the men students became assimilated into the common
group, through competitive games and general recreation. In the winter quarter,
a banquet was held in Lowry Hall, which proved to be by far the biggest event of
the year. The program was built around the general theme, "What I am going to
do for Kent State." This was excellently answered by representatives of the fra-
ternities and Y. M. C. A., and by outside speakers, including President Anderson,
Judge Rockwell, County Supt. McDowell, Dr. Chandler, Prof. Gorman, Mayor W. I.
Harvey. Dean Manchester acted as toastmaster while G. F. Elgin added "lots of
pep" with his excellent song leading.
The Spring affair was a Men's Union Dance held in Moulton Hall on March 12,
where a very delightful evening was enjoyed.
The Union has been governed during the year by a board of five men chosen
by the men students in attendance at the banquet. These will function until a Con-
stitution and By-Laws have been definitely adopted.

OFF C A IM P U S W O INI E N ' S CLUB
The women students of Kent State who do not live in either of the dormitories,
belong- to the OflF Campus group. Within this group is the Off Campus Women's Club,
which is a thoroughly organized group. Its hospitality to new girl students, and
its wholesome companionship among all its members make it a real force for up-lift
at Kent State.
On each registration day, the club gives a tea to which all of the new off campus
girls are invited. In addition, the club arranges, during the year, for a certain
number of activities — mostly social. Certain of these social functions, by reason of
their popularity in the past, have now become annual affairs in the club calendar;
especially the Harvest Party in November, The Pop Entertainment in December, May
Day Breakfast in the college woods. The Off Campus Club Banquet at Home Coming,
and several specialty club parties in the club room.
In the autumn term. Miss Lois Kestle was elected president to serve until the
midyear, when Miss Alice Elgin succeeded her. Miss Kestle's service to the club was
unstinted, and she with her able assistants accomplished much for the club. Miss
Elgin's presidency promises to be both constructive and progressive.
'"Tis due the O. C. K. S. Girls
A tiny bit of praise.
They help to boost with pep and song.
And Kent State's banners raise.
All know full well the charm they lend,
That brightens college days,

SOCIAL SCIENCE CLUB
A new type of campus organization came into being when the Social Science
CUib reorganized, November 18, 1926, as a dinner club, with a roster of 60 members.
On the third Thursday of every month the members gather around the dinner table
to discuss problems of the day in the light of their relation to education.
The officers of the year who have worked under Professor H. D. Byrne as adviser
are: Russell Woolman, president; Dorothea Harris, vice-president; Elizabeth Boyd,
secretary; Virginia Jones, treasurer; Committee chairman, Gwendolyn Drew, mem-
bership; Cletus Scheetz, program; Elizabeth Truscott, social; and Margaret Hayes,
Out of town speakers were Mr. Paul Packard, Cleveland, who discussed "The
Press and its Relation to Education" on January 20; and Mr. W. L. Connor, Director

BUCCANEER AND IMUSKETEER ACTIVITIES
Buccaneer! Musketeer! Names that have emblazoned themselves on the halls of
Kent State College as symbolizing all that is finest and most loyal in women's extra-
curricular activities. May this spirit that has grown from small beginnings not depart
with the graduates of this year, but linger to battle with the rookies of the future.
For the bold Buccaneer and the gallant Musketeer were each once but an idea the
possibilities of which four people pondered over one December day of 192.5.
"What do you think of it?" the Field Marshall leaned back in his chair and
glanced inquiringly through the dusk at the Admiral and the General.
These two worthy officers looked at each other and then at the Commander-in-
"Can it be done?" they parried.
"The girls must answer that" came the reply. "If they have spirit, loyalty and a
love of the game, it can be done."
So the plans laid in a small office in Wills Gymnasium were launched with the
new year. Henrietta Strayer, in the arrogant costume of a pirate king, and Helen
Blake, in the swaggering uniform of a Musketeer, stormed Assembly one January
morning in 1926, and explained the scheme. As they had hoped this surprise attack
brought in many captives, and it was two well-matched teams that met in an affair
of arms at the first tournament.
Could it be done? Girls who had never felt the burn of the floor on a tender knee
soon became plucky basketeers. Others whose only knowledge of tennis had been
that of the sport costume necessary when viewing a set, rose at four in the morning
to practice on the dew-soaked courts.
Loyal support, too, came from the faculty members who willingly and enthusi-
astically turned out to referee the field meets.
The hours of untiring labor, advice and life itself that Professor and Mrs. Frank
L. Oktavec have put into the B. and M. project are beyond the measure of words.
They have woven themselves into the very fibre of the teams.
It was not until the fall term of 1926 that the activities went outside the realm
of sport, and embraced all women's activities, elected honors, health and studies,
with a "K" as the insignia of the all around Kent State woman.
A committee of ten elected that the Buccaneer man-o'-war be steered by Edna
Tarr, and that Musketeer tactics be directed by Gwendolyn Drew. These officers
have shown themselves to be gallant leaders, and their warriors have fought nobly.
Whether or not she has reached the final achievement of a "K", all hail to the
Buccaneer and the Musketeer!

A "K" GIRL
A "K" Girl is an ideal college representative. She will leave the portals of the
institution that has nurtured her destined to be a perfect human being — ready in
vision, in knowledge, in health and in social adaptability to meet life. In awarding
her the letter of her Alma Mater, her happy mentors are merely symbolizing their
awareness of her magnitude. They are acknowledging and proclaming that she has
voluntarily assimilated all the big things Kent State College has offered. She has
participated in college outside school activities that have culminated in giving life
to what may have been only unspeaking walls and in giving her experiences in fields
only indirectly related to her particular profession; she has delved into her studies
with a desire to grasp all the truths and gathered all the material essential for
a teacher of wisdom and a person influential in any phase of life; she has striven
for the maximum of health, knowing that only with a strong machine could she produce
her maximum as a teacher and as a member of society.
To the "K" Girl:
CONGRATULATIONS! And— when in the world where material awards for
greatness are not always given, will you recall your "K", the award of your college
days, and revive the urge that prompted you then.

Kent State College has one of the finest gymnasiums in the state of Ohio. There
is hardly a day goes by without finding it crowded to its limits. When other colleges
visit Kent to play either a football or basketball game, everyone is interested in the
gymnasium. During the last year three high school basketball tournaments were
held in Wills Gymnasium. There is ample space in the gymnasium to seat thousands
of spectators and enough playing space to allow three games to be played at once.
In the basement of the building is one of the finest swimming pools one could
desire. The pool is under direction of Mrs. E. Irwin and is in constant use.

Aftei' two weeks of hard training the Kent team journeyed to Springfield to meet
one of the strongest teams in the State, Wittenberg, where defeat was met with
a score of 27-0. With only 18 men on the squad, the Silver Foxes fought every
minute of the game and went down to noble defeat.
When West Liberty brought a team to Rockwell field more men were back, and
many nights had been spent in practice to meet the team whom Kent had de-
feated in 1925, 7-6.
Overconfidence resulting from the splendid showing at Springfield, and too much
Potts gave the second game to West Liberty 25-2.
In the second Ohio Conference game of the year Kent received another setback
25-0. In this game Captain Don Menough was injured in the first quarter, and
taken out until the end of the season.
Unable to score a victory thus far, the team went south to Ashland to play
before a large Homecoming crowd with determination to win. Ashland, however,
had its best team in years, and the Blue and Gold wilted before a score of 55-0.
Not discouraged from previous showings, Kent State met her old rival, Edinboro,
on Rockwell field and won the first victory of 1926, 12-0. The game was fought out
on a water-soaked gridiron, and the first touchdown of the year was scored by
Schwartz. All the men played a fine game.
With memories of a 12-0 defeat of last year the team went after the scalp of
Findlay College. After out-playing their opponents for three quarters, Kent's
defense weakened, and Findlay scored a touchdown and kicked goal to a 7-6 verdict.
As usual Indiana Normal came to Kent loaded, and took away a score of 23-0.
The game was played before a large and enthusiastic crowd, but Wagoner's men
seemed to lack the fight possessed by Indiana.
Last of the year the greatest game of football ever played on Rockwell field found
Kent State a winner, 15-14 over Wilmington College. The game was thrilling
throughout. Wilmington scored two touchdowns in the first period, but Kent did not
give up. Searle and Schwartz came back and carried the ball over for touchdowns,
but missed the kick. This gave Wilmington a 14-12 lead. With one minute to play
Joe DeLeone made a perfect dropkick and won the game. It was a fitting ending for

The 1926-27 Basketball season was the most successful one completed by a Kent
State team for many years. Although playing one of the stiffest schedules ever
attempted by a "Silver Fox" team, Kent managed to hold her own against the best
in the Ohio Conference.
The game with Aicron University made Kent stand out better than any other.
The Zippers who were leading the Ohio Conference came to Kent expecting an easy
game — but Kent State was set for them and downed Akron 23-21 in the best game
ever staged in Wills Gymnasium. Every player who participated in the game was
responsible for the victory. Other Ohio Conference teams Kent played were Mount
Union, Case, Baldwin-Wallace, Hiram, and Kenyon.
Of the seven men who won letters this year only one, Gus Peterka, who has played
four years of basketball for Kent State is lost through graduation. The prospects
of a winning team next year are very favorable, as McDermott, Vair, Curtiss, Graber,
Searle, DeLeone, Whyte, and Henly will be back besides a wealth of material from the

With the first game a 3-1 victory over Ashland, the 1926 baseball team started
the season with a bang. The boys displayed an ability to hit as well as to field. After
copping the first game, Wagoner's men met Baldwin-Wallace before a large home-
coming crowd, and by last inning rallies nosed out B-W, 5-4 in ten innings. Hallahan's
single, with two men on base, gave Kent its second straight win. Much credit was
due to Captain Youngen's splendid pitching. In the next game Kent walloped Thiel
16-2 in an uninteresting game. The trip to Slippery Rock gave Kent her fourth
straight victory. Glass was in rare form and gave Slippery a few scattered hits.
The final score was 11-7 in favor of Kent. The next day Coach Wagoner and his men
traveled to Ashland to play a return game. The team went on a hitting spree to
capture the fifth straight win of the season, 5-4. This ended the season and Kent,
for the first time, had come through a season unbeaten.
The 1927 season is barely under way as this is written, so it is difficult to say what
to expect. Practice started late in March. The letter men to report were: Graber.
Feeley, Polen, and Curtiss. Besides these men McDermott, DeLeone, Williamson,
Miller, and several others are out for the squad.
The schedule for 1927—
April 28 Western Reserve at Kent.
May 5 Western Reserve at Cleveland.
May 7 Ashland at Ashland.
May 14 Slippery Rock at Kent.
May 17 Baldwin-Wallace at Kent.

THE 1926 TENNIS SEASON
Top row, left to right: Deakins, Dunn, Smith, Coach, Wagoner.
Bottom row: Jacobs, Line, Brown.
The 1926 tennis season was the most successful in several years. Although
she did not win many matches, Kent State always gave her opponents a hard fight.
Jacobs was the only squad member to win all his matches, and his playing was
never off form.
At the close of the season letters were awarded to Deakins, Smith, Jacobs, Line,
Because of a recent ruling made by the Athletic Board, there will be no tennis
team on the campus this year.

Kent State High ended a very successful Basketball year by winning the State
Class "B" Championship, Mai'ch eighteenth and nineteenth at Columbus, Ohio. They
started their successful season by winning a first place in the Trolley League, then
they entered the State Sectional Tournament held in Wills Gymnasium; they came
through this on top, winning by wide margins. This victory gave the "Blue Devils"
the right to enter the State District Tournament held in the Goodyear Gymnasium,
Akron, Ohio. A first place in this tourney gave them a ticket to Columbus to enter
the State Class "B" Tournament held in the Coliseum. Here they met real opposition
but were not stopped. They won three games in great style, defeating Oberlin High,
last year's State Champion.
"Our Champs" played a total of twenty-one games this year and lost four. They
will lose three of the eight men but still have five left for the coming season. From
this it is judged that next season should be as successful as this.
State High School proudly possesses four first place trophies won by the team, and
one, won by the school itself, knovra as the "Sportsmanship Cup."
